Found some intresting info. There were almost 1250 vehicles in Latvia by 1910. In 1903 there wre almost 400km of paved highways in Latvia, and more than 20,000km of gravel roads.

I've heard that nothing has been finished. There are only 2 asphalt layers instead of 3. It should be finished after winter.

EDIT: that's what I've heard. I haven't been there for some time and I can't be sure whether it is so or not

I think you are talking about the other part of A8 which is still in works now, check my map.

Some pictures from Daugavpils. Great works have been done on 18. novembra street (par of main road A13).

Look at the map (approximately):

[IMG]http://i49.************/2d9plrk.jpg[/IMG]

This section was reconstructed this year and as far as I understand, some other works are planned next year (till the bridge over Daugava, if I'm not wrong).
I added some random pictures without any specific order.

Seems like there is lack of the top layer of asphalt (seems rough) and it's delayed till the next year.

Certainly I'll do it the next time

By the way, while some sidewalks are in conctruction process, people enjoy using the street. Cars aren't allowed to use it right now (except emergency services only) and nobody bothers you. Sure, it's a very strange feeling. I noticed that I look behind my back very often because I know that usually there are cars

Wow! So slow. It was under construction when I was in Riga in 2009-10.

Just to make it onto new page, I'll post it here as well.

LVC has updated their site and released an online map, which displays roadworks and more throughout the country: http://lvceli.lv/eng/for_road_users/..._restrictions/

Plus, Bing Maps have updated images and half of new E22 route from Koknese in direction to Riga is visible: http://binged.it/RkNav8
